Fantastic - a book that progresses with you

Where does Italian Short Stories for Beginners rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a great book. I have it in both audio and printed formats. The stories get progressively difficult so you continue to learn as you progress through the book. Definitely recommended.

Good idea but you have to buy the book.

What would have made Italian Short Stories for Beginners better?

Would be useful if you had access to aleast a PDF. I thought I could purchase a PDF from Amazon but only got some on-line webviewer version you can't download to a Kindle.
Either this or spend an additional amount an buy anoher paper version.
